Microsoft PowerApps is so promising in its initial phase that once you start working on it, it’s hard to get your hands off.

Flows

You can create an automated workflow between your apps and Services to get notifications or to synchronize files, collect data and many more functionalities.

Flows will be the new Workflows, which we are using through SharePoint Designer or through other third party SharePoint tool

Now, flow will be a part of them, providing the automotive solutions to all the task or process.

You can set up a flow, which will manage Email flows, based on the different criteria or conditions.

Whether it’s a complex multi step process or a simple one-step task, flows will improve the effectiveness, productivity and performance of the process assisting all the end users to get the benefits.

Let’s see, how we can create one:

Apps

Another amazing thing which PowerApps offers is the creation of Apps in just a few simple clicks, which are compatible to all the devices and the Browsers.

PowerApps says, innovation just got easier. Here, you can create an app, while connecting to different apps, which you are already using without even writing a line of code and publishing them on all the devices to be used.
Apps

You can connect your app from a various everyday social or custom app and use them in your process of development to have your own PowerApps.

You can connect to the existing data sources and Services like Excel files, SharePoint lists, CRM records, your custom APIs, your drop box or any such to collaborate on your app.

The best part is you use a designer to customize or build an app, which uses the device capabilities, including cameras, GPS and pen control without writing any line of code.

  • So click on “My Apps”.
